GUCCI TAPS INTO MGMT FOR SPRING THREADS

apparently the creative director for gucci was so inspired by oracular spectacular that she dedicated her spring 2009 menswear collection to the band. “time to pretend” was even the show’s final song! “The line features brightly-colored and narrowly-tailored suits and other garments, often adorned with floral detailing.” To someone who is strangely attracted to people who dress this way, (some men look FANTASTIC in skinny jeans), this sounds HOT. a major, international fashion house + great music…how could it not be?!?

BEN SOLLEE WRITES DISS TRACK FOR KANYE WEST

by now, you’ve heard about kanye’s bonnaroo fiasco. he started his set 2 hours late (it lasted til almost 6am) angering plenty of attendees who didn’t understand why he was in the lineup in the first place. robert randolph even lead the crowd in a “kanye sucks” chant. here’s a recap. then, he lashed out in response in this blog post where he called bonnaroo organizers “squid brains.” (this comes into play later, i promise). well now, ben sollee (of the sparrow quartet, of which bela fleck is also a member) has released a diss track. i realize that kanye is arrogant. but i witnessed the creative work of art that was the glow in the dark tour. i think if i had been at bonnaroo, even after waiting for that long, it would still have been worth it, sunrise and all.
